Beinn Eighe

our_route.gpx Last year we tackled Beinn Alligin on our first visit to Torridon and wishing to save Liathach for better weather we decided to give Beinn Eighe a try. We had just endured a miserable two days, spending a whole day on Skye sorting out a puncture (many thanks to Ewan MacRaes for their ...

Re: Norfolk & Cambs: The Fen Rivers Way

Jonathan i must be the first to give the thumbs up to your report of what must be the flattest walk on the website (unless someone does one for the Broadford Co-op). The reason the report caught my eye was that i grew up in the Fens and cycled around a lot of this area and my parents nearly bought t...

Re: Blaven - May contain mild nudity and scenes of a Skye na

A great report Scott, i always thing the return is more dangerous than the ascent. i've encountered Ravens on several Munros but those on Anonach Eagach (see photo) and The Big Bookle seemed the most forthright, i now take a pack of fruit and nuts as tribute. They are clearly intelligent birds and l...

Re: Ring of Steall - A fool falls in

I agree about Stob Ban Graeme, All the better for being totally unexpected; it's now on my to-do list for this year (fingers crossed).

Goatfellas aka. Idiots abroad

This report seems like ancient history; not only is it (for me at least) pre-digital but it’s also pre-parenthood. My first Scottish mountain and very poignant for reasons that will become apparent. I’m not sure about the exact dates so I guessed them, all I remember was that it was May and there wa...

Ring of Steall - A fool falls in

This being one of the great set-piece walks, we had added it to our to-do list last year. Having driven down from Torridon on the 4th and stopping at the Glen Nevis Hostel we could get a full days walking in. As we took almost exactly the WH routes I will only stick to a few notes. 1 - man on a wire...

Beinn Alligin - one of the best

Having driven from Skye to Torridon the preceding afternoon we managed an early start (for us) from the SYA hostel. A short drive down the road to the Coire Mhic Nobuil car park and across the moorland to the foot of Coir nan Laogh took about ¾ hr. One of the great joys of Torridon is the small amou...

This is Ben and I’s third visit to Skye, the first being when he was one, we stayed a week on loch Ainort. The second a single day’s trip from the great Glen in absolutely beautiful weather when we got as far as the Quirang. On this third visit we had the serious intent of climbing/walking up someth...
